ACKNOWLEDGMENT 



The acreage, production and value statistics in this bulletin are official state and 
USDA estimates prepared by the Florida Crop and Livestock Reporting Service. The county 
and area detail were made possible by the participation of the Department of Food and Re- 
source Economics, University of Florida, in the estimating program. The Bureau of State 
Markets, Florida Department of Agriculture, and the County Extension Agents, University 
of Florida, Cooperative Extension Service, were also very helpful in supplying area and 
county information. Shipment statistics were provided by the Market News sections of the 
Florida Department of Agriculture and the USDA Agricultural Marketing Service. 

Grower organizations have provided valuable assistance and data throughout the 
season. These groups include the Florida Celery Committee, Florida Tomato Committee, 
Florida Sweet Com Exchange, South Florida Vegetable Exchange, ZeUwood Sweet Com Ex- 
change, and North Florida Growers Exchange. Sales agencies and transportation firms pro- 
vided the inputs necessary to complete the statistical story. 

Foremost, the growers, shippers and processors volunteered most of the basic data 
used in developing these official statistics. The public spirited cooperation of these individ- 
uals and groups is appreciated. 

Fieldmen James Spires, Immokalee ; Charles Robertson, Homestead; Wallace Jacobs, 
North Palm Beach; and Larry Amlong of Palmetto collected much of the basic acreage, pro- 
duction and price statistics in this bulletin. This report was assembled under the direction of 
Ed C. James, Gerald H. Moody and Carl A. Ouzts of the Florida Crop and Livestock Report- 
ing Service and E. F. Scarborough, Bureau of Market News. The authors also wish to thank 
Becky Altman, Jackie Bowen, Ray Crickenberger, Joe Galant, Laura Grimsley, Kitty Hildreth, 
Janet Meyer, Barbara Palmer, Mable Robinson, Tommy Scherer, Pat Todd, Angeline van 
Loon and others of the Florida Crop and Livestock Reporting Service who assisted in 
compiling and preparing this report.

DEFINITIONS AND EXPLANATIONS 



QUARTERLY GROUPS-During the growing sea- 
son, estimates were prepared for most crops on a calendar 
quarter basis in order to indicate available supplies for 
shorter periods of time than the entire crop year. The fall, 
winter and spring quarterly estimates are combined into a 
crop year total for all crops. Production sold or utilized is 
shown by months. 

PLANTED ACREAGE is the total acreage which 
has been planted for harvest during one designated quarter. 
Acreage lost and replanted to the same crop in time for har- 
vest in the same quarter, is counted only once. Acreage 
harvested and planted again to the same crop is counted 
twice. 

HARVESTED ACREAGE is the acreage partially 
or completely harvested. Acreage lost before or at maturity 
through natural or economic causes is not included in the 
acreage for harvest. 

YIELD is the average production per acre of mer- 
chantable quaUty harvested and sold or utiMzed. 

PRODUCTION is the quantity actually harvested 
and sold or utilized. 

UNIT VALUE for fresh market sales is the equiv- 
alent price received, f.o.b. shipping point basis and encom- 
passes all grades and sizes marketed or utilized. Included are 
packing charges, selling charges, precooling, top ice, or 
other costs which contribute to the value of the product at 
shipping point. The value per unit for quantities sold to 
processors is the average value paid for usable quantities, on a 
"delivered to plant door" basis. This value includes transpor- 
tation and other normal costs incident to delivery at plant 
door. 



TOTAL VALUE is the equivalent value of produc- 
tion sold or utilized based on the unit value. CuUage and 
other quantities not sold or utilized because of natural or 
economic factors are excluded. 

OTHER COUNTIES include harvested acreage for 
all counties for which either published data would result in 
the disclosure of individual operations or acreage totals for 
specific commodities are of minor importance in the state. 

All shipments and unloads, rail, truck , air a nd boat , 
are recorded nationally in 10,000 pound units each day. 
Annual releases are in 1,000 cwt. In this publication, ship- 
ments and unloads for some commodities were converted to 
most common trading units. Rail and piggyback weights and 
conversion factors were determined by several Market 
News Service field offices. Mixed car (rail) loadings by 
stations have been prorated by commodities. 

Where possible, the national Market News Service 
in Washington, D. C. has established a single uniform weight 
per commodity to be used nationally in converting to weight 
units for the various means of transportation. Weights per 
common container used and number of units per rail car or 
truck may be obtained by writing the MNS office in Winter 
Park, Florida. 

PRODUCTION AND PRICE UNIT-The official 
USDA vegetable crop estimates are published on a weight 
basis. For this bulletin, the official estimates for most vege- 
table crops have been converted to what is believed to be the 
most commonly used containers. If changes in container 
weights are necessary, all data pertaining to the produc- 
tion of the commodity in question is revised to maintain 
comparability between years. The table below gives the net 
wei^t used per container and the number of containers per 
hundredweight.

SUMMARY OF THE 1979-80 VEGETABLE SEASON 



The farm value of Florida grown vegetables, melons, 
potatoes and strawberries sold in the 1979-80 crop year 
totaled $788.7 million, up $34.7 million from the 1978-79 
crop year. Acreage harvested was slightly below the previous 
year. Crops showing the greatest gains in harvested acres were 
snap beans for fresh market, celery, lettuce, tomatoes, "other 
vegetables" and strawberries. Crops increasing in value were 
snap beans, sweet com, cucumbers, eggplant, green peppers, 
radishes, squash, tomatoes, "other vegetables ," watermelons, 
potatoes and strawberries. Crops with lower values than the 
previous year were cabbage, celery, escarole and lettuce. 
Most of the declines were due to lower season average prices. 
Tomatoes, which rose $24.0 million, showed the greatest 
increase in value followed by watermelons which increased 
$14.3 million, "other vegetables," $8.2 million, and cucum- 
bers $8.0 nuUion from a year ago. Cabbage and lettuce show- 
ed the greatest declines, down $30.0 miUion and $11.3 
million, respectively, from the previous year. 

Average yields for eggplant, squash, tomatoes, 
watermelons and strawberries increased during the year but 
yields declined for snap beans, cabbage, celery, sweet com, 
cucumbers, escarole, lettuce, green peppers, radishes and 
potatoes. 

Season average prices of snap beans, sweet com, 
cucumbers, eggplant, green peppers, radishes, squash, "other 
vegetables," watermelons, potatoes and strawberries were 
higher than a year ago. Season average prices for cabbage, 
celery, escarole, lettuce and tomatoes were below a year ago. 

Land preparation, planting and transplanting were 
very active in most areas of the state during July. Growing 
conditions were generally good to excellent over most of the 
farming areas in August. Planting activity progressed favor- 
ably. Rains resulting from hurricanes, cool fronts and a 
tropical storm slowed plantings in September. High winds 
damaged crops but little acreage was lost when Hurricane 
David moved up the east coast in early September. Planting 
and harvesting activities were interrupted by showers in 
October and November as numerous cold fronts moved 
across the state. 

Temperatures were generally mild during most of 
December. Heavy rains in early December washed beds and 
leached fertilizer. Cold fronts in early and late December 
brought low temperatures in the 30's as far south as central 
Rorida. Damage was limited. FoUage of some tender vege- 
tables received light frostbum in the central areas and light 
wind bum in the sou them sections. 

Much of January was characterized by numerous 
cold fronts with scattered frosts. Rainfall was mostly light 



and low temperatures were in the 30's and 40's during the 
first half of January. Temperatures were generally mild and 
rainfall heavier during the remainder of the month. Heavy 
showers and thunderstorms with up to 5 inches of rain 
occurred in late January. Accompanying strong winds caused 
minor damage to some tender crops. 

Cold weather with near freezing low temperatures 
dominated the first part of February. Many areas established 
record lows in early February as cold arctic air invaded the 
state. Brisk winds damaged some tender foliage. A warming 
trend ended when a late month cold front brought freezing 
temperatures and frosts to central Florida. 

A severe cold front in early March brought freezing 
temperatures over the entire Peninsula with record lows 
across the state. Freezing temperatures and gusty winds re- 
sulted in lost acreage and plant damage, particularly for 
tender crops. The remainder of March was generally mild 
with scattered showers and thunderstorms. 

Temperatures were above normal in early April and 
near normal for the remainder of the month. Skies were 
frequently cloudy with numerous scattered showers and 
thunderstorms. Rainfall was generally light to moderate. 
Some damaging hail occurred in many areas on April 19 
when a weak front moved over the state. Harvest was in fuU 
swing for some crops while others were declining seasonally. 

The month of May was characterized by cloudy 
skies and numerous showers and thunderstorms in the central 
and southern vegetable growing areas. Heavy rains and very 
strong winds during late May caused some Ught to moderate 
plant damage in areas of southeast Florida. Daytime high 
temperatures were mostly in the upper 80's with nighttime 
lows in the 50's and 60's. Harvest was very active for some 
vegetables but declining for others. 

Hot days and warm nights dominated the weather 
picture during June in the vegetable growing areas. Rainfall 
was Ught in early June. A cold front that stalled over central 
Florida, June 9-12, brought rains to most areas of the state. 
Rainfall was heaviest in the southeast with over 9 inches at 
Homestead. Showers and thunderstorms during the remain- 
der of June brought moisture to most areas, but rainfall was 
light in the southwest. Harvest was essenriaUy complete for 
most crops in the major vegetable areas by the end of June. 

Most of the weather data for this summary was 
supplied through the National Weather Service, VS. Depart- 
ment of Commerce, Ruskin, Florida. Information on the 
effects of weather on crops was provided by the Florida Crop 
and Livestock Reporting Service fieldmen.

SNAP BEANS 
1979-80 



Florida growers produced 5.1 million bushels of 
bush and pole beans during the 1979-80 season for fresh and 
processing utilization, down 19 percent from last year. Acre- 
age harvested for fresh and processing totaled 54,300 acres, 
up slightly from the 54,100 acres harvested during the pre- 
vious season. The average yield for the 1979-80 season was 
89 bushels per acre for fresh market and 129 bushels per acre 
for processing, as compared with 102 bushels and 163 bushels 
per acre, respectively, the previous year. 

The average f.o.b. price of $8.11 per bushel for 
fresh market was 53 cents more than the previous year and a 
record high. At $2.97 per bushel, snap beans for processing 
are up 75 cents from last season and 49 cents above the 
1977-78 season price of $2.48. Total value, at $36.7 million, 
was 1 percent above last year. 

Bush beans are grown in all areas of Florida with the 
exception of the east central and southwest areas. The south- 
east continues to be the major producing area. Pole beans are 
produced primarily in Dade County, with small acreages 
grown in Gadsden and Marion counties and the west central 
area. 



Earliest fall supplies of snap beans originate from 
west Florida. The north and west central areas, the Everglades 
and southeastern districts also provide fall production. The 
southeast is the sole source of supply during the winter. The 
other areas resume production in the spring. 

Snap bean production extended from early October 
into mid June. The fall crop peaked in December. Marketings 
declined in January and February. Production began to in- 
crease in March, and the spring crop peaked in April. Eighteen 
percent of the marketings occurred in April, dovm 3 points 
from April the previous year. 

Variable weather influenced last year's bean crop. 
Hurricane David caused extensive windbum damage but very 
Uttle acreage was lost. Heavy late September to late October 
rains in the southeast washed beds and leached fertilizer 
which reduced stands in newly planted fields. During the 
winter season, brisk, cold winds whipped plants, causing leaf 
damage and fruit scarring. Cold weather slowed maturity, 
resulting in lower volume. Weather during the spring season 
was generaUy favorable. Quality was mostly good but yields 
were below normal for the spring season. 



CABBAGE 
1979-80 



Rorida's cabbage growers produced 7.2 million crates 
and sacks during the 1979-80 season, down 15 percent from 
the previous season. The gross value was $21.9 million, less 
than half the gross value of $51.9 million received in the 
1978-79 season. The average f.o.b. price was $3.05 per 
crate or sack, down sharply from the $6.17 received for the 
prior season's crop. 



Total acres planted amounted to 18,600 acres, up 
nearly 2 percent from the 1978-79 season. Acreage harvest- 
ed totaled 15,800, a decUne of 11 percent from a year 
ago. Abandonment was higher than usual because of low 
prices. Yields were also down from last season, averaging 
454 crates per acre, 18 crates less than a year ago. 

Cabbage was available for market beginning in late 
November and continuing through June. Production was 
below normal during the fall period and the lowest since 
the 1969-70 season. The peak month was March, followed 
by April whUe February was close behind at third. 



The Hastings area, which includes the 3 counties of 
Flagler, Putnam and St. Johns, continued to lead the state 
in production, accounting for nearly 56 percent of the 
state's total. St. Johns County led all other counties in 
acreage harvested with 28 percent of the total acres harvest- 
ed in the state. 

Direct seeding and transplanting was begirming in late 
August and early September although less acreage was 
planted during tiiat period than usual. The most active 
month for transplanting was November followed by Decem- 
ber. Seeded acreage was the most active during October, 
however, only a small portion of the total acreage planted is 
seeded direct in fields. 

First cuttings began at the end of November. Har- 
vest increased slowly at first, then picked up during Feb- 
ruary and March. Winter production accounted for 60 
percent of the total crop, the highest for that period since 
the 1974-75 season. Spring production was down from 
the previous spring and the spring of 1978.

CARROTS 
1979-80 



Production of carrots in Florida continued to increase 
during the year. There were 1,223,000 cwt. shipped out of 
Rorida for both fresh and processing during the 1979-80 
crop year. Fresh use constituted 76 percent and processing 
24 percent. This compares with 74 percent fresh and 26 
percent processing the previous year. Approximately 12 
percent of the fresh carrots were mini or finger carrots 
compared with 14 percent the previous year. The remain- 
ing 88 percent were regular type carrots. Carrots are not 
part of the regular statistical program in Florida, therefore, 
data on acreage and production are not published separate- 
ly. However, data are included in "Other Vegetables." 



The muck soils around Lake Apopka, near ZeUwood 
and the Everglades provide a good medium for growth. By 
far the majority of carrots are grown in the Zellwood area. 
The mini or finger carrot movement usually begins in late 
October and is complete by the end of May. Regular size 
canots are harvested from November through June. The 
peak harvest period last season was mid January to early 
May. The young carrots are subject to cold damage in 
January and February in the ZeUwood area. Growing con- 
ditions were generally favorable. Size and quality were 
good throughout most of the season. 



CELERY 
1979-80 



Florida celery marketings of 8.2 million crates were 
harvested from 12,200 acres during the 1979-80 growing 
season. The average yield of 673 crates per acre compares 
with 695 crates the previous year. 



Prices averaged lower than the previous year and at 
$5.70 f.o.b. per crate, compared with $6.78 per crate dur- 
ing the 1978-79 season. Prices during each quarter averaged 
below a year earlier. The sharpest decline occurred in the 
winter and spring quarters. The crop was valued at $46.8 
million, a decline of 1 5 percent from the previous crop year. 

The Everglades, with 86 percent of the harvested 
acreage, was the foremost area of production throughout 
the season. The north central area, supplemented by alight 
supply from the Sarasota area, accounted for the remaining 
12 percent of acreage and provided a continuous supply 
throughout the season. 

Plant bed preparation and seeding were underway by 
mid June. Transplantings were gaining momentum by late 
August and became quite active in September. Transplant- 
ings in the Everglades were winding down for the season in 
early April and were complete by mid April. Plantings were 
also complete in the north central area by early May. 
Growers in the Sarasota area normally plant from October 
to March. 



Ligjit harvest began in early November in the Zell- 
wood area and the second week of November in the Ever- 
glades area. Growing conditions were hot and humid in the 
summer and early fall months. Heavy rains slowed progress 
in November. Cool weather in December was beneficial for 
growth and development. Quality was fair to good early in 
the season and then improved from good to very good as 
the season progressed. Yields and size were fair to good but 
generally below year earlier levels. 

No significant damage occurred from cold fronts 
moving into vegetable growing areas. The late winter and 
spring markets were on the weak side. Prices averaged con- 
siderably below year earlier levels. Approximately 4 percent 
of the crop was not harvested for various reasons. Growers 
passed seme acreage in order to maintain good quality 
celery. 

Celery production was most active December through 
May with April being the peak month. Cutting was com- 
pleted in all areas by the first week of July. 

Celery is subject to a federal marketing order ad- 
ministered by the Florida Celery Committee. Field super- 
visors provided the basic acreage and production data. In 
cooperaticMi with the committee, these data are assembled 
into weekly, monthly and aimual reports and published in 
this armual report. 



CHINESE CABBAGE 
1979-80 



Chinese cabbage is grown primarily on the mucklands 
of 2^11wood and the Everglades areas. The organic soils 
provide a very good medium for rapid growth. Harvest was 
underway by late November. Volume was light through 
December but increased to good supplies by January and 
February. Production reached a peak in February and 
March. Good volume was available from December to mid 



May. During April, ZeUwood was providing good supplies 
while the Everglades was declining seasonaUy. The season 
was over by June 1. Quality was mostly good throughout 
the season. No significant cold damage occurred. Shipments 
for the season totaled 135,000 cwt., down 17 p)ercent from 
the previous year.

SWEET CORN 
1979-80 



Florida, the Nation's leading sweet com producer for 
fresh sales, marketed 11. 2 million crates during the 1979-80 
season. Production declined 8 percent from the previous 
year. The decline was due to both a reduction in acreage 
harvested and lower yields per acre. Growers harvested 
51,800 acres, down 5 percent from the 54,500 acres 
harvested during the 1978-79 season. Yields averaged 215 
crates per acre statewide compared with 222 crates per 
acre a year earlier. Yields have averaged above 200 crates 
per acre for every year since the record 244 crate average 
in the 1972-73 crop year. 

The season average f.o.b. price of $5.03 per crate was 
78 cents above the average for the previous year. The total 
value of the crop was $56.1 million, up $4.7 miUion from 
the $51.4 million received for the 1978-79 crop. The value 
of sweet com ranked second in the state in vegetable crops 
and was exceeded only by the value of tomatoes. 

First plantings of the season were underway in the 
Everglades in July. Seeding on the east coast got underway 
in late September. First harvest began in the Everglades in 
late September. Cutting continued to gain and reached a 



good level by November. The declining harvest in the Ever- 
glades during December was partially offset by supplies 
from the lower east coast and Dade County. 

Harvest of the spring crop in the Everglades was 
underway by mid April. The Everglades became the main 
source of supply in late April as the east coast and Dade 
areas began to decline seasonally. The transition of harvest 
from the Everglades to Zellwood occurred in mid to late 
May. Lake County provided a good supply into July. The 
season was complete by mid July. 

A small acreage provided supplemental supphes at 
2^11wood and the west central area during the early fall, 
and at Sarasota in the early spring. 

Weather during most of the growing season was 
generally favorable, with the exception of freezing tempera- 
tures on March 3. Some acreage was lost in the Zellwood 
and Everglades areas. Quality and ear size improved as the 
season progressed and averaged mostly good for the season. 
The spring crop grew rapidly under favorable conditions. 



CUCUMBERS 
1979-80 



Florida production of cucumbers for fresh market 
and processing utilization during the 1979-80 crop year was 
5.1 million bushels, down 3 percent from the 1978-79 crop. 
The fresh market channel utilized 79 percent of the produc- 
tion and the remaining 21 percent was for processing. The 
23,100 acres planted was down 200 acres from the previous 
year. Harvested acres totaled 21,700, dovm 300 acres from a 
year earlier. Average yield per acre for fresh market, at 280 
bushels, was up 12 bushels from the previous season. Cucum- 
bers for processing averaged 145 bushels per acre, as compar- 
ed with 164 bushels last year. Total production was valued 
at $45.7 million compared with $37.6 million for the pre- 
vious year. The f.o.b. price for 1979-80 averaged $8.67 per 
bushel for fresh market and $10.01 per bushel for processing, 
as compared with $7.61 and $5.42 per bushel, respectively, 
the previous year. 

Supplies in 1979-80 were generally available from 
October through June, with light marketings January through 
March. Many of the recorded shipments moving out-of-state 



January through March are from offshore and truck imports 
resold in mixed loads. 

The production of cucumbers is well distributed 
across the state. The southwest area, with 38 percent of the 
acreage in 1979-80, is the largest area. The west central 
area accounted for 33 percent of the planted acreage in the 
state. The west, north, north central and southeast areas 
provide the remaining acreage. 

Weather during much of the growing season was 
favorable. The crop was in mostly good condition during 
the fall, but some young plants were damaged by rains in late 
September. Strong, cold winds, starting in December, slowed 
growth and caused leaf bum damage. Freezes in February 
were followed by a severe freeze in early March. Damage was 
heavy to young plantings and the remaining fall acreage. Con- 
siderable replanting was necessary. The crop was in generally 
good condition during the spring despite adverse weather 
with hail damage to the crop in April. Fruit quality, color, 
size and yields were mostly good for the spring season. 



5 



EGGPLANT 
1979-80 



Plantings totaled 3,1 00 acres, the same as the 1978-79 
season. Yields averaged 600 bushels per acre, 15 bushels above 
the previous season. Weather was generally favorable during 
much of the fall and spring. No acreage was lost but some 
spot resetting was necessary after Hurricane David. IXiring 
the late fall and winter, strong winds scarred fruit and burned 
tender leaves. Poor market conditions caused some abandon- 
ment of older fields in November. However, harvest was 
resumed in some of these fields when market conditions im- 
proved during January. In early March, freezing temperatures 
caused foliage damage and some loss of bloom and small 
fruit. Crop condition was mostly good to very good in the 
spring after plants recovered from the March freeze. Quality, 
size, and yields were mostly good. 

Production of eggplant increased to 1.7 million 
bushels, 2 percent above last year's production. Total sales 
increased to $7.3 million compared with $6.8 million a year 
earlier. The increase was due to higher yield per acre and 
price per bushel because harvested acres were unchanged 
from 1978-79. The season average price of $4.36 per bushel 
is 22 cents higher than a year ago. Compared with prices a 
year earlier, the fall crop was higher, the winter crop was 
unchanged, and the spring crop was lower. 



The distribution of marketings was generally normal. 
Harvest began in late September, reached a peak in Novem- 
ber, and dropped during the winter. November volume is low 
compared to the past 2 years because poor market conditions 
resulted in abandonment of some acreage. Harvest began to 
increase in April and reached a peak in June. Harvest was 
virtually complete in July. The southeast area around Pompano 
accounted for 45.7 percent of the harvested acreage. The 
northern and central areas combined contributed 46.4 per- 
cent of acreage harvested with the remaining small acreage in 
the southwest. 

Production is generally continuous through the en- 
tire crop year in the southeast and southwest, while the crops 
in the western, northern, and central areas are for fall and 
spring harvest only. Those areas receive too much freezing 
weather to grow eggplant during the winter months. 

First sales were from cuttings in the western and 
northern growing areas in late September. Harvest followed 
the usual pattern and progressed southward in the fall, 
continued through the winter in southern areas and then 
moved back northward in the spring. 



ESCAROLE-ENDIVE 
1979-80 



Production of escarole and endive during the 1979-80 
season totaled 3.0 irullion crates, down 10 percent from a 
year earlier. The 6,300 acres harvested were down 200 
acres from the previous season. Yield per acre averaged 
481 crates compared with 515 crates the previous year. 

Prices during the season averaged $3.72 per crate, 
compared with $4.05 a year earlier. The total value of 
sales, at $11.3 million, was 17 percent below the previous 
year. 

The Everglades, which had 75 percent of the harvest- 
ed acreage in the 1979-80 season, began seeding in early 
September. Weekly plantii>g schedules continued through 
March. Light harvest began in late October and supplies 
were continuous throu^ May. The mucklands around 



Zellwood provided good volume in the late spring months. 
The small acreage grown around Lake Placid and Sarasota 
mucklands furnished supplemental supplies during much 
of the season. 

Sales started slow in late October but increased to a 
good volume by November. Marketings reached peak levels 
in the February to April period. Harvest was completed in 
May. 

Groviing conditions were generally favorable during 
most of the season. However, rains during October inter- 
rupted planting and harvest activity. Some light cold 
damage to outer leaves occurred in early March. Quality 
of escarole and endive was mostly good throughout the 
season.

LETTUCE 
1979-80 



Florida lettuce growers produced a record 2.7 mil- 
lion cwt. during the 1979-80 season. An 8 percent increase 
in harvested acreage more than offset the slight decline in 
yield. The average yield of 193 cwt. per acre compares with 
199 cwt. for the previous year. The season average f.o.b. 
price of $13.67 per cwt. was $5.08 below the favorable price 
of a year earUer. Prices were lower than the previous year 
for all quarters with the greatest difference in the winter 
quarter. Prices during the spring quarter were only slightly 
below the previous spring. 

Acreage, production and value statistics of lettuce in 
this bulletin combine the various types into a single estimate. 
The types in order of importance include iceberg, 62 percent; 
romaine, 18 percent; Boston, 9 percent; bibb and leaf com- 
bined, 1 1 percent of the total acreage harvested. 

The Everglades muckland accounted for 88 percent 
of planted acreage and was the source of a continuous supply 
of good quality lettuce which began in early November and 
ended in late May. Outside the Everglades, ZeUwood is the 
other major producing area, with Sarasota and the Lake 
Placid mucklands contributing light supplies during most of 
the season. 



Seeding was underway in early September. All 
areas were actively planting by early October. The Everglades 
and Sarasota areas had continuous plantings through March. 

Very light harvest of specialty types was underway 
by late October and continued Ught until mid November. 
Volume gained considerably in December with growers 
cutting in most areas. The Everglades continued to provide 
the bulk of the volume during the winter period. Virtually all 
of the iceberg type is grown in the Everglades. Supplies peak- 
ed in April and declined to the season's end by late May, 
Volume from the Zellwood area was Ught during the winter 
months. Moderate supplies are available from this area during 
the fall and spring seasons. 

Growing conditions in the early fall were hot and 
humid. Heavy rains slowed field work. Growth was generally 
rapid. Several cold fronts slowed growth and maturity during 
the winter months but overall damage was light. Heavy 
volume was available statewide in March and April. Quality 
was generally good throughout the season. 



PEPPERS 
1979-80 



Florida produced 7.2 million bushels of peppers 
during the 1979-80 season, a decline of 11 percent from the 
previous year. The average yield of 414 bushels per acre was 
7 percent below the 445 bushels per acre last season. Produc- 
tion was from 4 percent fewer harvested acres. 



The season average f.o.b. price of $7.13 per bushel 
was up from an average of $6.13 for the previous year. The 
total value of $51.0 million was 3 percent above the previous 
year. Prices were generally good during the fall and winter 
periods. Marketings were light in October but increased to a 
fair level by December. Supplies decreased during the winter 
months but began an upward swing in April. The peak spring 
production occurred in May. The season then declined and 
was mostly over by the end of June. 



The 6 percent decrease in total planted acreage was 
the result of a 16 percent drop in the heavy producing 
southwest area. Increases in the north central and west central 
areas were not enough to offset the decrease. The southwest 
accounted for 48 percent of the state's total pepper acreage. 
The southeast had 22 percent; the north central area, 13 
percent; the west central area, 9 percent; and the north, 8 
percent. 

During September, hot weather and dampoff, plus 
wind damage in the Pompano area necessitated considerable 
replanting to improve stands. Conditions during the remainder 
of the fall season were generally good. Strong, cold winds 
during the winter months caused foliage bum to young crops. 
Replanting was active after the early March freeze. Spring 
weather conditions were generally favorable. Yields were fair 
to good.

POTATOES 
1979-80 



Production of potatoes in 1980, including both winter 
and spring seasons, totaled 5.3 million cwt., down 12 per- 
cent from the previous year. A total of 29,600 acres were 
planted, a decUne of 4 percent from the 30,700 acres plant- 
ed during the 1978-79 season. Of the total acreage planted, 
27,300 acres were harvested, shghUy over 2 percent below 
the year before. The value of the crop was estimated at $36 
million, nearly 19 percent above the 1979 crop. The in- 
crease in value was attributed to a higher average price 
received for all crops with winter potatoes up sharply. 

The average yield was 194 cwt. per acre, 21 cwt. 
below last year. The spring yields at 194 cwt. were down 
from last year's record of 228 cwt. In the Hastings area, 
which covers the three counties of Flagler, Putnam and 
St. Johns, the average yield was 195 cwt., down 35 cwt. 
per acre from the 1979 record yield of 230 cwt. Spring 
potatoes grown in all other locations of the state, ranging 
from the Ft. Myers area in the south to northern Escambia 
County in the Panhandle, averaged 170 cwt. per acre. The 
winter crop averaged 195 cwt. per acre. 

The 1980 season average price for all potatoes, at 
$6.80 per cwt., was $1.74 more than the 1979 season. All 
areas received higher prices than a year ago. 



Both "white" and "red" skin varieties are grown over 
the state. The red skin types are the dominant variety 
grown for winter harvest in south Florida. The bulk of the 
winter crop is sold for table stock but a few are sold to the 
potato chip industry. In the Hastings area the "white skin- 
ned" varieties are the most important. A large percentage of 
the crop is used in the potato chip industry. Both "whites" 
and "reds" are grown in the Hastings area and are sold for 
table stock. 



The winter potato harvest was late in getting under- 
way in 1980. Harvest got underway in late January with 
only one percent harvested in the month. Harvest was slow 
during the early months causing the season to extend into 
the spring months. The peak shipping month was April. 
Harvest of the spring crop in the Hastings area got under- 
way during late April. Peak harvest was in May but was also 
very heavy during June. Abandonment in the area was 
sli^tly higher than usual due partly to a hard freeze during 
the early morning of March 3, 1980. In the other growing 
areas, digging started in April and extended into early 
July. There was some acreage abandoned because of the 
freeze in early March. 



RADISHES 
1979-80 



In 1979-80, radish plantings amounted to 32,600 
acres compared with 33,600 acres planted the previous 
year. Acres harvested totaled 28,400, 4 percent below the 
record high of 29,600 in 1978-79. Yields per acre averaged 
247 cartons compared with 273 cartons the previous sea- 
son. The crop was valued at $23.1 miUion, up $5.5 million 
from a year earher. The average f.o.b. price was $3.30 per 
carton, up $1.12 from the previous year. 



A good supply of both red and white radishes was 
available from ZeUwood, Lake Placid, and the Everglades 
from October through May with a light volume going into 
June. The fall peak harvest occurred in December. The 
spring peak occurred in March. Seeding of the 1979-80 crop 
was underway in the Everglades and north central areas in 
early September. Plantings were slowed by early fall rains. 
Light harvest was underway in early October and became 
quite active in mid November. Supplemental suppUes were 
available from Lake Placid and Sarasota during the year. 



SPINACH FOR PROCESSING 
1979-80 



Spinach statistics have not been pubhshed separately 
for Florida in recent years in order to avoid disclosure of 
individual operations. However, data for these seasons have 
been included in the "Other Vegetables" series shown in 
this publication. Data for 1973 and earlier are available 



upon request. Yields per harvested acre averaged near 
yields a year earlier. Most of the crop is grown in the north 
central area. Freezing temperatures in early March caused 
a few problems.

SQUASH 
1979-80 



Florida's production of squash during 1979-80 season, 
at 2.4 million bushels, was .5 milUon bushels above last year. 
Harvested acreage totaled 13,500 acres, an increase of 1 
percent from the previous year. The yield, at 174 bushels 
per acre, was up 35 bushels from the previous year. 

The average f.o.b. price of $9.30 per bushel was up 
$1.79 from last season. Total f.o.b. cash receipts amounted 
to nearly $22 million. Prices were generally favorable 
throughout the season. 

Florida produces acorn, butternut, yellow crookneck, 
yellow straightneck, white, and zucchini squash. Dade 
County, with almost 27 percent of the state's harvested 
acreage in 1979-80, produces yellow crookneck almost 
exclusively. The Pompano area, in addition to being a major 
producing area, is also an important market for squash 
grown in other areas of the state. This is especially true 
when local supplies reach low levels during the winter 



months. The southwest area produces a continuous supply 
of most types. Central, north, and west Florida provide a 
good volume of most types during the fall and spring seasons. 

Squash is one of the few crops grown in Florida that 
is shipped every month of the year, although shipments 
during the summer are usually light and confined mostly to 
local markets. The 1979-80 season got off to a slow start. 
Marketings increased rapidly to a fall peak in December 
before showing a seasonal decline during the winter months. 
In mid September and early October, heavy rains delayed 
plantings and reduced quaUty, yields, and packout. During 
the winter months, January through March, cold tempera- 
tures and strong winds slowed growth, caused extensive 
foliage bum, and plant kill to both old and young crops. 
The weather was generally favorable during the spring 
quarter. Some fields were abandoned in May due to poor 
market conditions. Peak marketings for the season occurred 
in April. 



STRAWBERRIES 
1979-80 



Florida strawberry growers produced 4.0 million flats 
of berries during the 1979-80 season, up 24 percent from 
the previous year. Harvested acreage totaling 2,500 acres 
increased 4 percent from the previous year. Average yield 
of 1,583 flats per acre increased from 1,333 flats a year 
earlier. The f.o.b. return per flat for the season was $7.06, 
up 14 cents from the previous season. The value of the crop 
was a record $27.9 million, up $5.8 million from the $22.2 
million received a year earlier. 

Laying of plastic and other field work was in fuU 
swing by late September in the important Plant City-Ruskin 
area. Transplantings were very active around mid October 
and were completed by mid November. Some replanting con- 
tinued throu^out November. Some scattered blooms on 
early plantings occurred in early December and light harvest 



was underway by mid December in the Plant City and 
Dade areas. Early harvested berries were primarily for local 
use and roadside stands. Picking increased and shipments 
got underway in January. Peak movement occurred in 
March. Most of the commercial harvest was completed by 
late April. U-Pic harvest continued active during May. Plant 
growth was good. Freezing temperatures in early March 
caused some bloom loss. For the most part, plants and fruit 
were protected by sprinklers. Plant recovery from the cold 
was very good. Yields, fruit size and quality were generally 
good. Warm weather in late March and early April hastened 
maturity. First harvest was underway in Bradford County 
in late March. The season was nearing completion by early 
May. Yields were below normal as a result of early March 
freeze damage.

TOMATOES 
1979-80 



The total value of the Florida tomato crop for fresh 
and processing utilization was $244.2 million, an 11 per- 
cent increase over the previous year. The value of the crop 
was a new record for tomatoes. The average price received 
for fresh tomatoes was $6.28 for a 30-pound carton, 29 cents 
less than a year ago; however, acreage and yield were above 
the previous season and accounted for the record value. 

Total production of 39.8 miUion 30-pound carton 
equivalents was 14 percent above last season. The fresh mar- 
ket channel utilized 97 percent of the total, and the remain- 
ing 3 percent was used for processing which is a secondary 
utilization from the fresh market acreage. The Palme tto- 
Ruskin area accounted for 39.7 percent of the total fresh 
production; the southwest 31.4 percent; Dade County 18.3 
percent and the Ft. Pierce-Pompano area 7.5 percent, the re- 
maining 3.1 percent was produced in the west, north and 
north central areas. 

The average yield for the state was 918 (30-pound) 
cartons per acre, up 101 cartons from the year before. The 
demand was good during the year with winter production 
heavier than usual. Dade County produces most of the 
winter tomatoes. The fall shipments peaked in December, 
which accounted for 15.2 percent of the total production. 
January was the peak month during the winter season with 
12.8 percent of the year's total and the spring production 
peaked in May accounting for 24.2 percent of the total. 
Tomatoes are harvested from October to early July. 



The Palmetto-Ruskin area continued to be the acre- 
age leader with 14,000 acres harvested. The southwest area 
ranked second, harvesting 11,800 acres, and Dade County 
third, harvesting 11,400 acres. The Ft. Pierce-Pompano area 
had 3,500 acres harvested and the north central, north and 
western areas harvested the balance of 1,500 acres. The 
largest portion of this acreage was harvested in Gadsden 
County. 



Tomato planting got underway in July in all areas 
except Dade County. Growers in Dade County began plant- 
ing in mid to late August. Heavy rains and strong winds from 
Hurricane David in early September caused some damage. 
Loss was generally less than 10 percent and consisted mostly 
of plastic blown from beds. Weather was generally favorable 
throughout the remainder of the fall season. During the early 
winter period, strong, cold winds caused some leafbum and 
bloom drop. Below normal temperatures prevailed during 
February but damage was relatively Ught. On the morning of 
March 3rd, frost and freezing temperatures caused some 
damage to plants and fruit. The cold was of short duration 
and recovery was very good. There was damage in several 
areas from scattered hail during April. Damage was Umited 
to a few fields. Harvest was complete in the south by the end 
of May but continued active into July in the Palmetto- 
Ruskin area, Gadsden County and other central and northern 
areas. 



WATERMELONS 
1979-80 



Watermelon acreage planted during the 1979-80 sea- 
son totaled 45,000 acres - 10 percent less than the 1978-79 
growing period. Of the total acres planted 42,000 acres 
were picked at least one time. This was 1 percent less than 
a year ago. The crop of nearly 7.9 milMon cwt. was 22 per- 
cent above the 1978-79 season. The average yields varied by 
areas, ranging from 140 cwt. in the Panhandle to 215 cwt. 
in the south. The state average was 185 cwt. tying the pre- 
vious record of 185 cwt. set during the 1974-75 season. 

The average price received was a record 5.92 cents 
per pound, nearly 1 cent above a year ago. Prices received 
by growers for their melons were the highest in the south 
where they averaged over 7 cents per pound. The value of 
the crop was a record $46.5 miUion, $1 1 .4 million over the 
previous record set in the 1974-75 season. 

The watermelon harvest usually begins in the Im- 
mokalee area in April but for the fourth consecutive season, 
harvest was late getting started because of cold weather 
during the late winter or early spring. However, there is a very 
small acreage grown in the fall in the south and harvested 



during November through early January, depending on 
weather conditions. This small acreage is included in the 
total for the spring season. The harvest season progresses 
northward into the central areas during May, the northern 
areas in June, and comes to an end in the Panhandle by mid 
to late July. June continues to be the heaviest shipping 
month. 

First plantings were made in the Immokalee area 
during late December. Cold weather during early March 
damaged the crop in the south and killed most of the 
young plants in the west central areas requiring extensive 
replanting and spot replanting. Fields that were set back by 
the cold made good recovery. 

Harvest was heavy in central and northern areas 
during June. By late June dry weather was hurting the crop 
in the north and Panhandle. The dry conditions were a 
major factor in the heavy abandormient in the Panhandle. 
Demand continued good into July. The season was com- 
plete by the end of July.

OTHER CROPS 
1979-80 



Cantaloups are grown in Florida primarily in the south- 
west and north central areas. Much of the production is sold 
through roadside stands and local markets. The peak harvest 
period is normally May and June. Harvest begins in the 
southwest and progresses northward seasonally. There are 
some cantaloups grovm during the fall months in the south- 
west and west central areas. Acreage continues at a relatively 
low level. However, this crop is not part of the regular stat- 
istical program for vegetables and melons. Researchers con- 
tinue to work toward developing new varieties that will be 
better adapted to Florida's soils and cUmate. There appears 
to be some promise that acreage may expand in the future. 

Cauliflower continues to expand in the Zellwood, 
Hillsborough -Manatee and Everglades areas. Supplies are 
available from December through April. At the present time 
statistics are not available for pubhcation. However, if this 
crop continues to grow, it may become part of the regular 
statistical program in the future. Shipment information is 
being recorded by the Market News Service. In the 1979-80 
season there were 86 thousand cw^t. shipped out-of-state, 
compared with only 65 thousand cwt. shipped out the pre- 
vious season. This converts to 391 thousand 22-pound 
cartons. 

Sub-tropical v egetable production increased from the 
previous year due primarily to improved yields. Improved 
fertUization, spray programs and better growing weather 
contributed to the good yields. Acreage harvested was up 
only shghtly from the previous year. By far the majority of 
the acreage is grovra in Dade County. Conmiercial produc- 
tion began in the early 60's. Sub-tropical vegetables is a 
coUoquial expression applied to certain vegetables eaten 
primarily by those of Latin American and Caribbean origin. 
The most conmion name for each crop followed by the 
scientific name is listed below. Other common terms for 
the various vegetables are shown in parenthesis. The crops 
consist primarily of boniatos-ipomea batatos (sweet potato); 
calabaza-cucurbita (pumpkin); malanga-xanthosoma sagj- 
tae folium (dasheen, yautias); and yuca-monihot esculen- 
ta (sweet cassava). The boniato, calabaza and malanga 
constitute the bulk of the production. The Dade County 
Agricultural Extension Service reported 10,600 acres of 
sub-tropical vegetables planted in the 1979 calendar year. 
Peak production of the malanga occurs in February through 
April. Efforts are now underway to even out the supply 
throughout the year. Available crop land continues to be a 
limiting factor for all agricultural production in Dade County. 
New varieties of calabazas are being brought in from Colom- 
bia, South America to select those which do best in south 
Florida. Cassavas (yucca) show a lot of potential as a 



producer of ethanol to use in gasahol as well as a fresh 
market vegetable. Flaking and freezing processes are being 
researched for boniato, cassava and malanga. Miami is an 
important point of consumption for the Florida production. 
Also, considerable amounts are consumed in the Tampa Bay 
area. The supplies shipped out of the state are primarily for 
the New York City and Philadelphia areas. 

Collard , turnip, mustard and other greens are grown 
throughout the state and centered around the large popula- 
tion areas and in the muck soils of the Everglades and 
Zellwood areas. Good volume is available November through 
March. Shipments totaled 112 thousand cwt. during the 
1979-80 season, down from the 141 thousand cwt. for the 
previous season. 

Okra is grown in many areas of the state during the 
warm season of the year. However, Dade County produces 
okra for local use as well as for shipments to other states. 
Peak production takes place in May and June with a good 
supply in October and November. 

Green onions and leeks are produced in the north 
central areas. Supplies are marketed primarily for local use 
at roadside stands and markets. There are several large 
producers who ship to other states. Supplies of dry onions 
are limited. Most of the dry onions are produced in southern 
and west central areas of the state. 

Parsley is available in both the curley and plain types. 
The bulk of the commercial volume shipped to other states 
is produced in the Everglades and Zellwood areas. Light 
supplies sold for local use are available from the Sarasota, 
Lake Placid and other areas. 

Southern peas are grown primarily in the northwest, 
west central and Everglades areas of Florida. Dade County 
also produces a considerable amount of southern peas, 
light supplies are available September through December. 
Heavy movement occurs in May and June, especially in 
northwest Florida. A high percentage of the crop is utiliz- 
ed for processing. Good supplies are sold through local 
markets for fresh use. Market News Service shipment 
statistics for out-of-state market, show 21 thousand cwt. 
for fresh market during the 1979-80 season. 

Watercress is available the year round. The major 
source of supply is the Oviedo area. Most of the production 
is shipped to northern and eastern markets in the United 
States. A limited supply is available from local state farmers 
markets, especially the Sanford Market.
